Trivia

According to Douglas Snauffer, his shared screenwriters credit on this movie was primarily contractual. He was hired to write an early draft of the script, but most of his material was discarded by director David P. Barton. "Dave had a very strong vision of where he wanted this movie to go," Snauffer has stated, "and he is a very capable writer. Dave did a great job of making the movie he wanted to make, and he deserves the credit for his work." See more »

Quotes

[repeated line, chanted by all the zombies]
Abi's Victims: Do you know what happens when you're dead and rotting? Your flesh turns putrid and your clothes start spotting. Your belly bloats up, your guts turn to chum, your eyeballs turn purple like overripe plums. Your skin turns black with a putrefaction gleam, pus drips from your pores like whipping cream. Yes, it's no fun being rotting and dead. It's no fun at all; enough has been said.

An appropriate title.
20 September 2010 | by luhpjeffSee all my reviews

So I was looking for a decent horror. I see the cover of the film and I say to myself, "this looks promising". I pop the DVD in and watch the first few minutes of truck action. I start to fall asleep already. Not being one to leave something unfinished, I stuck through from No Trespassing to the end.

The premise of the movie was usable, it had great potential. What the director turned it into was a snoozefest of Serta proportions. If you get the chance to see this movie, pass. You'll likely end up sleeping through everything but the little chant they added which was about the only decent thing in the entire film.

The title doesn't lie. The entire script is dead and rotting.
